Jack C. Kilgore, president of the Consumer Brands Division of Rich Products Corporation, was honored recently with the United Way of Coastal Georgia’s highest accolade – the 2014 Volunteer of the Year award.
Kilgore has worked in the Golden Isles community for more than 35 years as a leader within Rich’s, one of the world’s largest family-owned food companies and a leading global supplier to the foodservice, in-store bakery, retail and industrial marketplaces. He currently is co-leader of Rich’s U.S./Canada Region, with primary responsibility for the Consumer Brands Division, Canada Division, and the company’s global Quality Assurance/Regulatory Compliance function.
“This year’s volunteer honoree was elected by a landslide,” said Dana Haza, president and CEO, United Way of Coastal Georgia. “Jack Kilgore’s selection is the result of an overwhelming community response. We received many, many messages of recommendation for him – I believe a record number. There very quickly was no doubt about who is Glynn County’s most-deserving volunteer this time around. The results were unanimous.”
